This has been tweeted and retweeted a number of times in the past hour, and just in case you missed it, I thought I'd pass it on. The CitizenServices.Gov site (which you may know as USASerivces.Gov, the Citizen Services Network E-Government initiative led by the General Services Administration’s Office of Citizen Services) has launched its new newsletter -- and it's a must-read for community indicators practitioners.
The Transparency and Open Government Newsletter (PDF) includes a number of items of interest in its 40 pages:
President Obama's Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies
